Emerald was introduced in 1955 by the USDA and the Georgia Agriculture Experiment Station. Nicknamed the “Cadillac of Lawn Grasses. “It is one of the first zoysia grasses sold on the market, and holds true to its name with its attractive fine leaf texture and beautiful dark green color. It is slow to spread, but once established with a dense turf, Emerald chokes out weeds and other grasses and is wear resistant to foot traffic.

Mow at 1.5 cutting height. Mow no more than 1/3 of the leaf off at one mowing. May be required on a 7 to 10 day interval
Water to supplement rainfall shortages only. Avoid fixed timer irrigation settings. Though drought tolerant, Zoysia best performs when it receives approximately 1 inch of water per week. If one or more inches of rainfall occur in a week, additional irrigation is not necessary.
Fertilize with Total Lawn Food 16-4-8 + Iron and Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone, which can be purchased at your local Super-Sod store.
Apply between 2 and 4 pounds of nitrogen per 1000 square feet annually, during the growing season. Too much fertility will result in a thatchy, unhealthy lawn and increased disease risk.
Supplemental application of Iron will improve grass color.
Zoysia’s dense growth can reduce the weed population but to be sure, use of a pre-emergent herbicide, recommended for use on zoysia lawns on the label, is strongly recommended in the spring and fall.
